Watching my wrinkles deepen
6

Gwenhwyfar · 08/06/2020 21:32

OK, so it's normal for wrinkles to get worse as you get older, but the worsening is supposed to be gradual isn't it? I could swear one of mine's gotten noticeable worse overnight. Is it supposed to happen like that?
Could I be dehydrated or something?
All my wrinkles are worse on one side of the face and I don't know why because I don't drive so it can't be photoageing on the driver's side only.
Any ideas about what's going on, or am I just going to look 100 years old by the end of lockdown?

Gwen I'm sort of the opposite. My skin was ok (but naturally fairly dry) but I seemed to develop hayfever for the first time in my life after lockdown (unless I'm allergic to my family Grin) so spent about 6 weeks scratching my eyes to bits and not bothering to moisturise in case that made it worse.

Hayfever has calmed down but now my skin is horribly dry and I could probably wedge my debitcard in a wrinkle that's appeared on my forehead. I've even changed my parting to the opposite side in an effort to hide it. Grin

What's happening to us Porridge? I had very dry skin at the beginning of lockdown, but it got better once I didn't need the heating on all day. I had it on today though :(

I'm the same. I reckon I'll need a new ID card to get back in the office as I really think I've aged 5 years since March: loads more lines and I noticed the crepe effect where the cheeks meet the hairline yesterday when I laughed as I looked in the mirror.

I should really start following this board but I get a bit scared of all the ingredients mentioned. I try to buy products that are as natural as possible so don't want to go down the extreme skincare route; however basic unfragranced unperfumed un-anything isn't doing me any favours. Smile

Thanks Nel. I've actually got one, though I guess it might not actually be silk. I don't have sleep creases when I wake up, but I do have messy hair, which the silk pillow case is supposed to stop.

You probably sleep on that side. Get a silk pillowcase!
